I Received an Award Today!

Now I get to give an award!

I received this very heavy, prestigious award from
Pixeltrashamania. You need to check out her blog full
of fun pictures, great ideas, directions for a cute headband,
and links to some delicious recipes. She also created my wonderful
new banner at the top of this blog. Thank you Tami!
This has to be the best award I've ever won (of course, it's the first award I've won). I'm so excited!
As you can tell, I have a lot to be excited about. Here's my award!

Zombie Chicken Award reads:

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…

I award the Zombie Chicken to......

1. Linda Krug - Gimmeahaller's Crafty Little Things
2. Pam - Cookie Crazie
3. Thenester - Nesting Place
4. Sitstahood - The Secret is in the Sauce
5. Linda MacDonald - Restyled Home

Now go my five pretties, live the life of the Zombie Chicken and bestow the award to others.

Thank you so much Tami for awarding me!

New Party Site

My soap is being offered on a new site that just went live this week! Hooray!
She is offering all types of party favors and boxes, etc. All the products that she's going to offer are not up for sale yet as she's still working on the site. I think she's done a great job so far. If you know of anyone that is planning a wedding, baby shower, or bridal shower, send them on over to www.divaentertains.com to check it out. They may find something really neat there.

Wouldn't this soap look so cute in one of these gift bags? I've never seen such cute bags in my whole life!

Trip to Tami's House

This past weekend we went to visit Tami, Jeff, Graham & Vaughn. It was a fun weekend. Jeff made some amazing food on the grill! He did a leg of lamb and we made gyros. Yummmmy! He also did a chicken and some sausage.
We went fabric shopping on Monday. I wanted to find some nice material to make Ella a new little bonnet. I had wanted her to be able to wear mine that I had when I was a baby, but before I remembered it, she had outgrown it. It was given to me by my Great Great Aunt Bertha. She worked in the children's department in Kaufmann's in Pitts. for many years and always sent cute gifts for the new babies in the family. It has seen better days anyway since it's already 60 years old! Here's a picture of the old bonnet.

By evening I was getting itchy fingers and had to get moving on the new bonnet.
I tore my bonnet apart and used it for a pattern and made it bigger. Thank goodness Tami now has a sewing machine and I was able to sew it together! We had fun working on the bonnet and Tami worked on a new headband. We did a lot of laughing about our different methods of sewing and also about me making my whole wardrobe the year I was entering 9th grade! I hope I can find pictures of those outfits to show Tami! Everything was coordinated so it was all mix and match. I was so proud of myself!
Here's the pictures of the new bonnet with the baby attached!
